Day 20

“Book turned into a movie and completely desecrated.” Oh, come on. This is too easy. ERAGON BY CHRISTOPHER PAOLINI. I fell in love with the books but that movie…holy shit (pardon the language, but I think it’s the most accurate wording). I can’t even comprehend how that movie HAPPENED. I absolutely hated it.

Day 19

“Favorite book turned into a movie.” I’m going to avoid the Harry Potter movies for this one.
